More Description

A volume in Research on Technology and the Teaching and Learningof Mathematics: Syntheses, Cases, and PerspectivesAccording to NCTM's Principles and Standards for School Mathematics, "Technology isessential in teaching and learning of mathematics; it influences the mathematics that is taughtand it enhances students' learning." How does research inform this clarion call for technology inmathematics teaching and learning? In response to the need to craft appropriate roles fortechnology in school mathematics new technological approaches have been applied to theteaching and learning of mathematics, and these approaches have been examined by researchersworld-wide.The first volume provides insight into what research suggests about the nature of mathematicslearning in technological environments. Included in this volume are syntheses of research ontechnology in the learning of rational number, algebra, elementary and secondary geometry, mathematical modeling, and calculus. Additional chapters synthesize research on technology in the practice of teaching and on equityissues in the use of technology in mathematics instruction. Instead of simply reporting achievement scores of students who use technologyin their learning, authors provide thoughtful analyses of bodies of research with the goal of understanding the ways in which technologyaffects what and how students learn. Each of the chapters in this volume is written by a team of experts whose own research hasprovided important guidance to the field.
